This answer was rated:

May I include in Tax Return a paycheck $600 for a service without 1099 or W-2?

MyVirtualCPA :

Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.

MyVirtualCPA :

Yes, you can include income on your tax return without a 1099 or W-2 form

MyVirtualCPA :

If $600 is all you received (you are not self employed) put the amount on line 21 of your tax return

MyVirtualCPA :

It's good practice to include income on your tax return, even if that income is not reported to the IRS

MyVirtualCPA :

If you are self employed, include the amount in your gross receipts on your schedule C.

MyVirtualCPA :

If you are not self employed, as I said before, simply place the amount on line 21 of your tax return.

Customer:

Thank you. I am not self-emp. Have I put a company name, which paid me?

MyVirtualCPA :

You do not need to put a company name down on your tax return. Simply placing the amount on line 21 will suffice.

MyVirtualCPA :

Is there anything else that I can assist you with today?

Customer:

There is form 4852. Is this for my case?

MyVirtualCPA :

No, form 4852 is not for your case. This is for when you lose a W-2 that was issued and can't get a copy
